Today was a pleasant day, and your correspondent decided to take some needed “solitary exercise.” Properly masked and gloved, and carefully maintaining social distance, I walked the length of the Promenade, continued down Columbia Heights to Brooklyn Bridge Park, then back up and home. On the way, I saw that the “non-bouncy” replacement of the pedestrian bridge connecting Squibb Park and Brooklyn Bridge Park, which had been naked pylons the last time I saw it, now has reached what appears to be a state of near completion, at least of the upper portion (see my photo). The recently announced ban on non-essential construction will likely bring further work to a stop for an indefinite time, but at least we know the bridge hasn’t been abandoned.
